Un-lockdown – Is the Government still hibernating the truth

Posted on: 25th June 2020

Of course it’s right to lift our country out of “hibernation”. A cautious lifting of the lockdown should happen as soon as it is safe to do so. However;1. the Government should have put in place a competent test & tracing system before this happened. Other countries have. But not here; 2. the Government should […]

The Cummings and goings of the real PM…

Posted on: 23rd May 2020

  So how would the Conservative Government manage without Prime Minister Cummings? This pandemic has shown the UK at its very best – magnificent frontline workers; stoical population respecting the need for lock-down and distancing; and stronger communities where kindness has overcome unkindness. But the Conservative Government has treated it as a public relations rather […]

Crisis shows the true value of key workers and the strength of our communities

Posted on: 29th April 2020

Tomorrow evening we stand out again to applaud our frontline workers. Those people who literally put their lives on the line to save the lives of others and to keep us all going – not just NHS professionals, but care workers, refuse collectors, grocery retail workers, transport workers, delivery services and many, many more. It’s […]

Perhaps our NHS will now get the backing it deserves

Posted on: 16th April 2020

Of course I was relieved to hear news about the Prime Minister this week and pleased he is turning the corner and is now recovering from the deadly Coronavirus; just as I am for the many thousands of others who our NHS has saved from a much worse outcome. He says “it could have gone […]

Amongst the dark clouds …are a few silver linings

Posted on: 1st April 2020

We should of course look for silver linings in the dark cloud of this emergency. It has brought out the very best as well as the not-so-good in people. But the best seems to be winning. And we’re winning other benefits too: Less carbon emitted to our atmosphere which is great for combatting climate change. […]

£millions of Pandemic aid handouts for second homers while low incomers get none

Posted on: 16th March 2020

Fighting for justice for the low paid and self employed, many of whom face severe hardship from the Government’s emergency C-19 measures. Meanwhile the Government gives generous handouts to second home owners. The grants now being offered to Cornwall’s second homers who don’t need the £70 million+ they will be entitled to claim under the […]

The Blues show their colours… (This week’s Blog – 17th Feb)

Posted on: 21st February 2020

Dutifully chanted lies Prime minister Dominic Cummings and his official spokesman Mr B Johnson reshuffled what the media called their “Puppet Cabinet” this week. And it must have been reassuring for Mr Cummings to witness his newbies demonstrate cheerful choral obedience for the TV cameras by dutifully chanting the already debunked lies about the hospitals […]

Cold comfort from Conservatives for child refugees

Posted on: 22nd January 2020

Conservative MPs have yet again today voted to refuse sanctuary for child refugees. This is as unsurprising as it is disappointing. Conservative MPs of course routinely attempt to defend themselves by quoting the numbers of children who’ve successfully been resettled here in recent years (see this tissue of astonishingly selective “evidence” from the local Tory […]

Bus shelters for airline users…

Posted on: 11th January 2020

Fifteen years ago I recommended that our society should insist on providing “executive airline lounges for bus users and bus shelters for airline users”. It wasn’t the three word and four syllable slogan that apparently works for political campaigns. So the campaign never took on. But the point was made. Our transport system seems to […]

2020 – Offering the benefit of doubt…

Posted on: 30th December 2019

Let’s offer them the benefit of doubt in 2020⁄ If what’s promised is delivered, 2020 ought to be a year to look forward to… The Prime Minister promises to restore our NHS, boost our economy, resolve the social care crisis, leap towards zero carbon Britain, slash poverty and to invest in education, policing, vital infrastructure, […]
